Working With Cats…

Ryan Conners

So, this is a daily occurrence while I’m painting. Mind you, I have a total of 3 IKEA tables that run along two walls to make up my desk area. Ample space for cats to lay, sit, do cat things. My painting area is basically where the two main desks meet and make a corner. So I twist left and I see my monitors, I twist right and I paint. Swivel chair and all that. I figure this is my little space on all of this desk and it should be a ‘safe space.’ Naturally, it isn’t because I have cats! There’s something about wanting to be *the* cat who insists on walking over my painting area to get to the other side of the desk. They can’t jump down and jump back up on the other side of me, no, too much effort! So in order to hurry the ‘walking across the painting area’ I pick up kitty, and move to other side. Just so they can try to walk back across again, and again. ha! Cats. I love them. desk 3

Cats Willow and Stephen love to hang out on the table, inspecting my work.

Willow the calico, even though I have a ginger kitty over my head in the painting, is by far *the* worst ‘let-me-step-over-your-work” offender!

Joaquin and Wally are loungers. They love to lounge right next to me while I paint…that’s if they can get past Willow to get close enough most days!

Happy National Boyfriend Day!

Ryan Conners

Two years ago I visited my boyfriend in Maryland for the first time. It was a fabulous week and when I came home I thought I’d draw out some of the key moments I remembered. This was our first, out of many, trips to the Baltimore Coffee and Tea shop. Naturally I drew us as cats, because…it’s what I do! I decided to color it with some watercolor pencils today. Trying to keep it as close to actual colors. Only for paintings do I wish I wore more color. >.>
